vipinvelp (2187) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2013
Somewhat cloudy with decent lasting white foam, lacing to glass and upper lip. This is how it should be. Nice triple aroma, but than taste is bit dissapointing. Too little spunk, bit earthy, bit too sweet. Pitty. (Velp 201305)

Swaroga (1340) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2013
33cl bottle. Cloudy yellow with medium, white head. Nose : citrus, peach and banana, yeast and flowers. Sip : medium body, decent carbonation. Creamy. Sweet with caramel background. Fruity with dominating esters. Still well balanced. Easy to drink. The finish is mild and mellow on bitterness. It leaves mostly fruity flavors. Ok.

Douberd (2290) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2013
Stubby bottle, 330 ml, at home. Poured into a new tulip glass since my girlfriend broke my old one and she is now forbidden of even touching my beer glasses. ABV 9%. 2.32€ Golden yellow colour on the body, only a tiny bit hazy. Two fingers of soapy, snow white head. Good retention and a couple of rings of lacing created on the glass as the foam went down. Aroma is yeasty, with a mix smell of floral and fruity hops following. The high alcohol makes it smell at first like a cheap, high alcohol pilsner, but it becomes better as it warms up, with the fruity side shining a bit more. Strong taste, with the alcohol very notable and in-your-face. Nicely balanced between sweet and bitter though. A bit more than average carbonation, medium body. Good beer, it would be even better if the alcohol was somewhat hidden and the florar or fruity taste more up front. Personal opinion.

chinchill (1869) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours a cloudy straw-gold with a sizable, frothy, off-white head. Leaves about as much lacing as I’ve ever seen in a beer of this style. The yeasty-bready-fruity-grassy smell is paired with a yeasty-wheaty-fruity taste that is more sour than sweet. Both the aroma and the flavor have somewhat lower levels of banana and clove than those found in many Belgian blondes. Hints of coriander and lemon. Light-medium body, if a bit fuller than average for style. The carbonation is a bit aggressive. Overall: OK, but a step down in quality from their excellent Brune.
